Strongly seconded. HTML (and LaTeX) lists are based on long experience
in the document/printing industry. As an example, I have been told that
many if not most of the original HTML elements and structure came from
similar stuff used before at IBM (where SGML originated).
On the other hand, XML2RFC was created single-handedly by Marshall Rose.
Given that, it is an amazing achievement. But when talking to him about
oddities for lists and such, he quickly admitted that he didn't have
much experience, and just made things up as best as he could.
